I am from Spain and when I was 17 years old spent a year in USA. It was very difficult for me to learn english, but I finally did with many teacher's support. Now I am 36 and have much lower english level: If you donīt use it, you loose it. Spanish is a very complicated language, even for me, so take it easy. In my case a great way to learn was watching movies I had already seen translated to spanish in original version. Good luck and thank you for learning espaņol ;-D

good luck in learning Spanish.
I have been living and working in Italy for the last 15 years. I am bilingual and teach English both privately and in the state school system. Today about 35% of my private students and at least 10% of my students at school suffer from dyslexia in some form or another. I have had some great results with spoken Englsh. The written is always been a problem for my dyslexic students. The most difficult thing for me as a teacher at the beginning was adapting to many of my students learning curves. Let me give you an example of a student who is C1-C2 (intermediate-advanced level) who seemed to make little progress for at least a year who then made a huge jump. He seemed to take three steps forward and then two back. The fact is that he continues going forward. With other elements of language - tense and aspect for example - he made more progress in two years than most people do in a lifetime. His communication is good - the communicative part of language is solid while the precision part is - lets just say not absolutely perfect but who cares anyway he speaks a million times better than many non dyslexic students. Feel free to email me if there is anything more specific that you want to talk about.
